On Saturday, Indiana football traveled to Columbus only to get pounded, 56-14, by the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes. To say embarrassed of this football program is an understatement.

If I’m being entirely honest with Hoosier Nation, I stopped watching this game once it was 21-0 in the first quarter. Of course, I missed the Dexter Williams II to A.J. Barner V touchdown at the end of the first and the touchdown pass to Donaven McCulley all the way in the fourth quarter as well. But, honestly, that’s all I missed.

The embarrassment I feel as an Indiana football fan is far too much as we enter the final two weeks of the season. Back-to-back weeks where we don’t even come close to challenging top 25 teams is embarrassing, especially when you consider that we lost four of the five games prior to unranked opponents.

Watch the highlights below if you want to feel sad and embarrassed as an Indiana football fan:

The only positive I took away from this game was the performance of Dexter Williams II. After five passing attempts, Connor Bazelak was pulled from the game and Williams II took over. He was just 6-for-19 throwing but threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Along with that, Williams II ran the ball 16 times for 46 yards, out-rushing every single player on the Hoosiers roster.

Honestly, I feel the only way that Tom Allen could potentially save his job after back-to-back embarrassing seasons is a season-ending win against Purdue. That’s it. Beating Michigan State won’t be anything significant, but I also give us little-to-no chance of winning that game as well.

703 losses and still counting. The most in the history of Division I football. Can the Hoosiers end the losing streak at seven games?
